correspondent elizabeth cohen has a special airing tonight on 25 shocking medical mistakes. and she joins me now. elizabeth, this is you know, it's trouble withing to say the least. >> it is trouble withing. it's not just a hypothetical. i did this special because of mistakes that had happened in my own family. so this can really happen to people and this new study out from johns hopkins puts numbers on it. take a look at these numbers because it makes you go, oh, my goodness. i don't think people realize this. wrong procedures, the wrong procedure is when you go in for a ton sellecktomy and they give you an appendectomy. that happens to 20 patients a week in this country. 20 patients a week have the wrong procedure. now, same number of patients, 20 patientses a week have an operation on the wrong body part. you go in to have your right knee replaced and they replace your left knee. wrong sided surgery. and in addition to 39 patients a week, they have tools surgical tools left in their body. and are sewn up. and yet you have to know these things going in so that you can be prepared. >> i mean, y
after you see how many calories are packed into some popular restaurants. elizabeth cohen is live in atlanta. how many calories are we talking about? >> an enormous amount. in one dish, you're getting calories should you get in an entire day. i think americans expect fast food is high caloried. i think you don't get that even in a nice restaurant, sometimes you're getting even more calories. take a look at two dishes. this one right here is cheesecake factory he's bistro shrimp pasta. 3120 calories. >> did you say 3,000? >> yes. that's a 3. yes, you heard that right. and you're supposed to get about 2200 calories a day. so it's way more than you're supposed to have in an entire day. as a matter of fact, that one dish is the equivalent calorie-wise of 5 1/2 big macs. you would never sit down and eat 5 1/2 big macs, but that's what's in this dish. and let me show you another one. this is called veal porter house and crispy red potatoes and that has 2710 calories. again, more than you're supposed to have in an entire day. it is the equivalent of three pints of ben and juerry's ice cr
. sanjay gupta is in atlanta. what are you expecting to hear? >> elizabeth cohen has been working through the night on getting these numbers. one number, which is important and what we expected. widespread outbreak of the flu. 47 states, up from 41 states with an outbreak of the flu. some good news. the number of states with high levels of activity has gone down from 29 now to 24. two additional deaths in young people, from 18 to 20. but there may be some relief as you say in sight. we are at epidemic threshold. that basically means we are seeing more cases than we expected to see at this time year. big question? will those cases stay elevated or will they start to come down across the country? >> we keep hearing, get a flu shot, get a flu shot. some got our flu shots early. yes, i'm gloating. if you haven't gotten your flu shot yet, is there enough vaccine? >> i think so. i crunched some numbers on this overnight. may be some spot shortages, but general numbers, take aook at how many of these vaccines were specifically manufactured, 135 million, bottom number, 112 million vaccinated. not
be taken over by ganster mickey cohen. the film recreates th nightclubs, neighborhoods and hoods in general of l.a. but it is cohen the ganster squad is after.and he is brilliantly played evil and psychotic by sean penn. the guns and blood are in overkill.but the story is well told and acted, though the graphic violence brings it down. robert carlyle, who many know as the leader of the guys from the full monty, plays a former british rocker now working on an organic farm by day and a podcast about tragic rock stars by night. when he gets a d.u.i. his life changes and he's forced to confront his demons. carlyle makes us feel the pain of post fame and trying to make peace with the past. california solo. back to you, marty. and isabel. >> this live look outside at heavenly. it was 25 degrees in the last time you checked. >> is supposed to only 25 degrees for the high temp. attempts are run the bay area, joe? >> this is from the san mateo bridge. temperatures- channe john janu? >> it is going to be cold. and as we go towards tomorrow. right now, the 20's and of vallejo, san jose, concord. pleas
cohen played -- mickey cohen played by sean penn. it's a little bit quirky. penn is definitely channeling the robert deniro element from "the untouchable." it's a fun movie. but they waste the talent of emma stone. she is so one dimensional in the film. not her fault, it's the writing. go see a matinee, don't pay the full price. three and a half out of five. worth seeing in theaters. >> your thoughts quickly on the oscar nominations, you mentioned katherine bigelow not being nominated for director. >> right. >> what's the guy's name from argo? >> ben >> ben affleck. >> do they have to broaden the director nominees as well? >> that's my point. i think that if they're going to nominate nine movies, you can not giver argo a best picture nomination and not nominate the guy who created it. that's ridiculous for me. i think these are the worst nominees i've seen in a long time. i was happy with the "django unchained," but you cannot snub bigelow, leonardo dicaprio never been awarded. an actor from a james bond film never nominated and should be nominated. he was incredible. i was ups

again. like hagel, william cohen was a republican senator before he was bill clinton's secretary of defense. >> i think he'll face the same challenge in terms of people on the democratic side saying, wait, we have some pretty talented people that are -- could step in at a moment's notice and fill that spot. and the republicans will say, why are you helping out a democratic administration? >> reporter: one key republican already is challenging hagel. >> i am concerned about many of the comments that he made and has made, like reference to a jewish lobby, which i don't believe exists, i believe a pro-israel lobby exists. >> others insist hagel is not anti-israel. >> he belongs to a sort of tough minded -- in this case republican view of israel. that in fact accepts the reality that while the united states and israel are very close allies and will remain close allies their views on every issue cannot be expected to coincide. >> reporter: and critics in the gay and lesbian community have turned around their opposition to hagel. in 1998, hagel opposed james hormel an openly gay man to
is a lot safer. our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins me now to explain. what are we talking about in terms of rules? you think they should be there, wouldn't you? >> you would think they definitely should have already been there and safety advocates have been begging for these for years and thrilled the fda doing the basic things. better measures to keep animals out of fields where crops are growing because what they do in fields? poop in fields. we don't want that. better rules to get farm workers to wash their hands and the last one, little gross but i have to say it. okay? got to say it. which is, port-a-potties for the work earls because when they don't have them, what do they do? >> come on. no way, elizabeth. that's not already a regulation? >> no, no. there aren't strict rules like the rules doing here. again, you can see why safety advocates so frustrated because some of the things are so basic. and they're hoping these will be fully implemented. we have done the segments, peanuts, spinach. they seem to go on and on. >> in fact, i was going to bring that up.
-old boy is wondering how this common treatable virus could take the life of their son. elizabeth cohen is joining us. she spent the morning with the family. elizabeth, how did this happen? >> reporter: wolf, it was such an emotional morning. i'm in front of the church that the family attends. mack was 17. that personified who he was. as you said, perfectly healthy. on december 21st he started feeling sick, a headache, a little bit tired. he had a fever but really no big deal and he was better in about two days and he then he felt fine for a while. and then a couple days later he started feeling bad again. his parents took him to a local hospital in the rural area they were in and they said he's got the flu and his kidneys are failing. they said, we have to get him to a bigger hospital. they put him on a helicopter and this is what max said to his mother as he was getting on the helicopter. >> one of the last coherent things he said, he looked at me and tears were rolling down his face. >> he was scared. >> he said, mom, i'm scared. i said, i know, buddy. i am, too. he said, mom, it's g
be exhumed, not a single member of the cohen family objected to that ruling. shep? >> trace gallagher in los angeles, thanks. infamous somali pirate known as big mouth has reportedly held a news conference and announced he is retiring. here he is. kind of. according to the reporting of wired magazine. old big mouth and his gang have pulled off some of the most brazen hijackings in recent history. he reportedly scored a 3-million-dollar payoff back in 2008. after he captured a saudi owned super tanker the size of a u.s. navy aircraft carrier it was loaded with $100 million worth of oil. later that same year, he reportedly netted another 3 million. after his crew captured a ukrainian ship packed with antiaircraft guns, rocket propelled grenades and 30 tanks. old big mouth did not say why he is quitting his pirating. down in a big way more than 50% in the past two years. at least 42 people are dead. dozens more trapped as a landslide buries a village. and it tops our news around the world in 80 seconds. >> china, it happened this morning in a mountainous region in the southwest. heavy, muddy de
elizabeth cohen has been following up on this. i'm at an absolute loss. >> it's so hard to be those parents. so hard. you know, the american academy of pediatrics is officially against it. we reached out to autism speaks which is a big advocacy group which is big on autism and their families. they say there is currently no adequate scientific evidence to advocate the use of medical marijua marijuana. they're saying there's this family who's saying they had a good experience, other families who say they've had a good thing. >> other families. how many? is there a group? have they found each other? are they able to lobby? hey, listen. when there are controversial drugs being tested, and you're in fear of dying, you do anything. regardless of what the government says krks which is mann will continue to be a. >> right, so these families have found each other. the eckecles family did it. they're scattered, downline, talking to each other online. i don't think there's a formal lobby or anything. so they live in a state where marijuana is league, then they do what this family did and they try to s

to the clinton administration when president clinton invited william cohen, a republican to be defense secretary. then the obama administration, president obama asked robert gates, a republican to be defense secretary. then there was leon panetta. and now another republican, chuck hagel. what's wrong with democrats being defense secretary? >> right. actually, just as an historical footnote, roberts used to be a republican. you know, i think that there's a sort of feeling that each one of these can be justified. i think president clinton and cohen had a good relationship, as does president obama and senator hagel. in gates' instance, that made a lot of sense. so much was going on that you didn't want to have an immediate change in the defense. but that is true, that it looks like democrats always want to appoint republican secretaries of defense. also if you look at the history of the independent councils, they have almost all been republicans. and as a democrat i sometimes get frustrated, too. we can't find an independent council in our own party. i can understand the frustration but the preside
to the hospital. our senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen joins us by phone from louisville, texas. we have you on the phone because we know you're working on a flu story about kids. give us a preview. >> it's a terrible story of a completely healthy 17-year-old boy who got the flu, you know, kids get the flu, it happens, but it did not, he got very sick, very quickly and unfortunately, he ended up passing away, and this is what sometimes happens with kids. kids can look completely fine, and in less than 24 hours, or about 24 hours later that child is on a respirator in the intensive care unit, and a lot of these kids are just completely healthy kids with no underlying health problems and we don't know why most kids are okay with the flu. they're sick for a little while and get better. some of them die, we just don't know why. >> is it too late to get a flu vaccine to protect our kids, to protect ourselves? >> it isn't too late. that's one of two things i'll tell parents to do, to be empowered parents. this is so crucial. one, get your child the flu shot. we heard that people are still
autism lost their symptoms as they grew older. senior medical correspondent elizabeth cohen here to talk to me about this study. first, just explain the study. >> it is fascinating because it turns conventional wisdom on its head. doctors thought you can't outgrow autism once you're diagnosed, that's it. you have it. these researchers found 34 kids who were diagnosed with autism by good doctors who know what they're doing as very young kids before the age of 5, and then they -- years later when they looked at them, they didn't have any signs of autism. they were examined and the signs were gone. >> so how is this even possible? >> a couple of things going on. they found in some ways this group of kid had somewhat milder autism to begin with, that's one thing. it could also have something to do with the early intervention that these kids got, some of the training and the schooling and what have you, the therapy these kids got. and it also might have something to do with the children's individual brains. maybe there was something about their brains. and researchers have told me, you know,
nominees for 2012 are "beasts of the southern wild wild". >> "silver linings playbook." donna, bruce cohen and jordan producers. >> "zero dark 30" producers. >> lynn con, steven spielberg and katherine kennedy producers. >> "les miserables" producers. >> life of pi, producers. >> "amour," nominees to be determined. >> "django unchained," stacy, reginald and pilar producers. >> and "argo," grant, ben af fleck and george clooney producers. >> "argo" has been nominated. somebody tell cranston, he can unclench his teeth now. brian, i love you. please join us at the oscars, sunday february 24th to find out who will take home the oscars. >> congratulations to all the nominees. all right. the nominations and "django unchained"'s chief correspondent and director for the hollywood reporter. good morning to both of you. "lincoln," no surprise. 12 nominations there. you were surprised, two movies we're hearing about, "amour" in two major categories nominated, as well as beast"beasts of the southern wild". >> those are two movies that made great gains today. "beasts of the southern wild," and wallace
, like when william cohen. can you compare when william cohen was nominated as a republican by a democratic president as opposed to senator hagel? >> we've heard republicans say that chuck hagel ceased being a republican several years ago. they were concerned when he voted against -- remember, he voted against the iraq surge. he was against it. he differed from the bush administration on a number of things and i think a lot of republicans feel that he sort of left the party a while back. >> brian: jennifer griffin at the white house for a very good reason. news secretary of defense is going to be nominated today. thanks. >> gretchen: another controversial issue was general mccrystal. remember over in afghanistan he was leading the charge there and he gave an interview to the rolling stone magazine. in that, there were many revelations about how he felt about president obama and his administration. subsequently, mccrystal did resign. >> brian: i will say this, he was never quoted, criticizing the administration. others were saying that's how he felt. but he never blamed anybo

"time" magazine is owned by our parent company. even chris christie took issue with this cover. he suggested it made him look like a mafia boss. he also joke eld that it made him look like tony soprano and may have damage eld his relationship with bruce springsteen because he stole his nickname. >> i assumed it was like he's supplanting bruce springsteen. >> he's a huge springsteen fan. >> i thought that, i thought he runs the republican party, the state of jersey, i did not think mafia. >> most people -- i don
